Rear sets

ok, I'm down to either Sato's or the Mori's for the rear sets I want to add to my rc.I've not read anything bad about the Satos,ever, and I know that on rc51.org they are praised.Even gave a good prop to the Mori's.Are you still using the Sato's Duckhunter?Any gripes about them?How about the Mori's?It seems to be getting hard to find the Mori's for the rc lately though.I would appregiate any input for these.
Thanks,
Chris

The Sato's are still my rearset of choice as I have crash tested quite a few sets now... They limit the damage to the bike & replacement parts are just a phone call away.

Honestly though if I could not get the Sato's I would switch to a cheaper brand like Vortex. I don't mind paying more for the Sato's simply because they are IMO the best built rearsets, but what I am really getting for my money is customer service. If I ever have a problem or need a replacement part I know I will get what I need quickly.


You can still get the Moriwaki's, but they are not very well represented in the US anymore & replacement parts are sometimes difficult to get.

I had thought about Woodcraft's, they seem to be well built.Any opinion on those?

They would be my 3rd choice for a good quality, cheaper rearset.

The Vortex's have a new peg with like 1/8" spikes all over it. I've tried them out at the end of last season & love them

I'll look at those. One of the resons I keep the Sato's at the top of my list is they seem to have quite a bit of adjustment to them compared to alot of sets I've looked at.With me being 6 ft 1 I want to be able to adjust to what feels best to me.
